The Apostle Paul’s letter to the church at Ephesus has been called “a great rhapsody of the Christian salvation.” “This letter is pure music,” says John Mackay, “what we read is truth that sings.” Ephesus was a seaport city - a capital city buzzing with commerce and spirituality.  Sound familiar, Bostonians? The ancient letter still speaks today for those seeking renewal and consistency as they are moved to wonder and worship. We invite you to join us for this verse by verse journey through Ephesians beginning May 6.


Our Anchor community is participating Boston Dream Center’s outreach on Saturday, June 16th, from 8am to 12pm, at the Boston Common. We are collecting men’s spring jackets, shirts, pants, shoes, and socks in all sizes to distribute. There is a significant need for larger sizes, including XXL and 3XL sizes. All items need to be new or nearly new with no rips, tears, stains, broken zippers, etc. Bring your donations Sunday, June 3rd to Anchor for this outreach. You may also register here to volunteer.

Also, stick around after the event! Pack a bag lunch or grab food downtown and we will picnic together in the common!

DISCIPLESHIP_Main copy.jpg

On Vision Sunday 2018, Pastor Randal shared a new initiative with our community, The Discipleship Project. This project aligns with the mission of Anchor Boston, which is “to lead people toward exchanging misconceptions about God for truth, becoming worshippers of the Creator rather created things.” Discipleship and being a worshiper of the Creator are intertwined. For, to truly be a worshipper of God is requires every aspect of our life being wholly submitted to him; that Jesus Christ is the center, spirit, and glory of all that we are and all that we do. 

The Discipleship Project is intentional, to develop discipled leaders. The following are short-term intensive modules that are offered:

Module 1 - Pivot: focuses on establishing spiritual practices which will assist the participant in making a 180 degree pivot as a follower of Christ.

Module 2 - Defend: designed for those who desire to learn how to defend their faith by studying Judeo-Christian Apologetics.

Module 3 - Know: a study in Systematic Theology covering such subjects as the existence of God, attributes of God, Trinitarian doctrine, the earliest creeds of the Church, the Incarnation, redemptive/covenant love, and Eschatology.

Module 4 - Influence: for those who desire to be empowered to be witnesses by living a Spirit-filled life. Topics include Pneumatology (the theological study of the Holy Spirit), the Holy Spirit in the New Testament Church, and the gifts of the Spirit.

Module 5 - Lead: designed for followers of Christ interested in spiritual leadership in community. 

Module 6 - Alpha: focuses on the big questions of life in this exploration about the meaning of life. Ideal for people on the fence about the Christian faith.

Upcoming module schedules will be posted on our homepage.

An exciting part of our community at Anchor Church is our Anchor Crew community groups! Our crews provide a space for groups of like-minded individuals to interact with each other, with strong foundational theology, and with God, offering a safe place to explore life and faith. While attending, members of a crew can expect to build strong relationships, have life-giving spiritual discussion, and experience encouraging times of corporate prayer. Crews meet all over the city!

The summer crew session begins the week of June 10. Sign up here for more information.
